‘Sorry I’m late Jolene, my jetpack ran out of power’

Well ladies and gentlemen, the future is here. A man has flown across a great big gorge in America powered solely by the jetpack strapped to his back. I was so excited when I saw it. It’s like something from a science fiction film – and a really great one at that!

Think of how good it’d be to live in an age where we could fly down the road to get some milk. It’d be so much fun! Everyone would be rocking a windswept hair look most of the time but I’ve already mastered that one so it suits me just fine!

I think we’re a little way off yet. Apparently the jetpack can only currently run for about 33 seconds, but that might just about get me to the corner shop and back…

Don’t believe me? Take a look at Eric Scott, aka Jetpack Man, in action.
